I have two questions to ask:
Effort only produces its reward ________ a person refuses to quit.
a. after b. when
The key is "a". "b" is not correct because it might suggest something taking place at the same time. Is that right?
Interesting. My instinct when reading the sentence was "...when a person...". I would say both could be used here, and that "when" would have the meaning of: in view of the fact that
Stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart and the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
This is a metaphor. Could you please kindly explain the meaning of it?
It is related to the saying "Good fences make good neighbours". It is better not to be too close to one another, to have some space in which to act, yet be near enough to offer support.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
